"Masterpiece" as written by and Meg Frampton....
Too bad you knew me.
I wasn't ready.
I wasn't ready.
Did I say come and get me?
Too bad I held on when you tried to tell me,
This was wrong.
This was wrong.

I am no masterpiece where innocence is painted green
Isn't it strange to think how you created all of me?

Done by the hands of a broken artist
You painted black where my naked heart is
Now I finally know what wrong is
Carved like a stone with hands still shaking
On display through a soul still breakin'
Aren't you proud you're the one that made me?

You can't erase these, lines you can't save me
You can't display me, you know what dismay means
Can't even try to
Remember what I knew
Before I became your model to claim no

I grew tired
You expired
You finished me
Now that I'm all that you planned
What do you think?


(I won't ever let you fall, I'm no masterpiece at all)

    General Commentwowies, first comment.

    i think this song is about a girl who dated this guy and all he did was change her. eventually she wasnt anything like she was before.

    General CommentThis song is definitely about a relationship that has passed...and in the process she was recreated. I think, maybe, that she had tried to keep him...and thought that if she was everything that he wanted he would still want her...and it just didn't work like that. But, here she is a new "masterpiece." I can relate. And it's one of my favorites.

    General Commentthe end of a relationship.
    i imagine that to be in the relationship in the first place was a huge step for the girl.
    she was obviously changed by the relationship and took on new points of view
    "can't even try to remember what i knew"

    the way i see it she feels betrayed by this broken artist because he stole from her innocence and her original beauty as a masterpiece.

    anywho, good song.
    one of my favs off the album

    General CommentI heard that this song was about God.... "I am no masterpiece...so strange that you made all of me." I sounds like it fits, although I'm not saying that Meg and Dia writes religious songs

    General Commentumm I think the one part is wrong, to me it sounds like she's saying "now I finally know what wrong is" twice instead of saying "now I finally know you bleed for nothing".

    General CommentIt sounds like:
    Can't even try to
    remember what I knew
    before I became your
    model of clay, no.

    General CommentI don't think this song is about god at all...then the whole first part would not make any sense. I think it's about a relationship where the guy totally changed her...maybe because things he did or the way he treated her. Then she became someone totally different and maybe did things back because of the way he treated her...that's why she's saying she's not innocent, and that the way she is, is what he created. :)

    General CommentI def think it's about a guy. I would think she was young or that this was her first serious relationship since she says she wasn't ready. However, I think she wanted to be ready, I mean, noone wants to be alone right? But it obviously didn't work the way she'd hoped.

    General CommentIn an interview, Dia said that it's not about God since they're Agnostic and Athiest. She said it was about Meg's ex-boyfriend.
